Can't believe it's been two months since I last posted. Things got busy, I got lazy, etc. But lots of things coming up so felt it was a good time to get back on the saddle...
According to UPS
, my new iPhone 5
arrives by 10:30am tomorrow. Should be sweet.
The biggest thing I'm looking forward to? 64GB of memory since I've got about 1.5GB left on my 32GB iPhone 4S
(damn baby pictures/videos).
I've been reading about a ton of backlash with iOS6
, especially maps. I think this is great! When everyone is constantly patting you on the back, you get complacent. I even think all the success coming from the Android
camp is welcome because it forces Apple to be better. Competition helps everyone. On a side note, I think the iOS6 maps aren't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Sure, there are some warped looking satellite images but I don't rely on that as much as I do the turn-by-turn directions which though aren't perfect, don't seem to be any worse than apps like Waze
. I've gotten plenty of wrong directions from those guys. Plus it's free and Apple will make it better. I've been using the iOS6 developer beta for a couple of months now and trust me, after a few months of usage, you do get used to the maps. The only glaring exception is Street View which I liked. If Google
decides to release a new Maps app for iOS, I'll probably download it. If they decide to give it turn-by-turn directions, I'll probably use it over the Apple Maps app. Outside of that and the occasional need to use Street View
, I'll be using Apple's Map app most of the time as I'm sure most people will.
